Texting while driving can lead not only to injury but death. The idea that it is no big deal, will just take a second, or I am not like all those other idiots and I can drive and check my messages is wrong. How many times have you seen someone driving while checking their text messages or actually sending a text. If you believe you can do it and still be safe watch these videos. The reality is that you can end up killing someone and destroying several lives including your own. Take the time and look at the video links below. One is a story about a young man who was texting while driving and the other is a public service campaign It may save you or someone you love from horrible consequences. http://ut.zerofatalities.com/#texting http://youtube.com/watch?v=K5NIE3osZEs
I’ve seen this video, it definitely makes you think!
I agree with the need to outlaw texting while driving; however, I don’t see the need to limit talking on the cell in a school zone.
I will be discussing the cellphone in school zone in my next blog, but the short answer is they were concerned about a driver being distracted and kids running around.
Texting while driving should be forbotten.
I’m convinced that no one should text while driving. Thanks for the timely warning.
Having heard of friends driving into lakes and parked cars, I know it’s very insafe. Those are hard hitting commercials but definitely get the message across!
